Dangerous Goods

Course Code: TLILIC0001
RTO (Registered Training Organisation): #5363 (Advanced Industry Training)

Licence to transport dangerous goods by road

This training program is based on the ADG Code 7.4 and relative requirements of Jurisdictional Competent Authorities to enable drivers to apply for and obtain a Licence to Transport Dangerous Goods by road. The purpose of the course is to provide skills and knowledge required to obtain a Dangerous Goods (DG) driver licence to transport DG by road. The training covers compliance with regulatory requirements but does not address all the skills and knowledge for the transportation of DG.  On achieving competence in this unit, further industry specific training will be required to satisfy legislative requirements to transport DG. The elements of this course are delivered based on the requirements for underpinning knowledge and practical requirements for readying equipment and documentation.

Course delivery is over 2 days as mandated by Industry Skills Council.  The overall course structure is listed below.  There is a mandatory assessment as part of the course. A Statement of Attainment will be issued by the RTO on successful completion of the course. Once the course Statement of Attainment has been received, drivers have 6 months to obtain a medical certificate for Dangerous Goods licencing and present the application for DG licence, medical certificate and Statement of Attainment to NT Worksafe.

Course Structure

Successful completion of this course does not provide a dangerous goods licence.  Drivers must apply to NT Worksafe for licence to be issued.
